Trip Moments

Do a cruise to Okinawa, you must not miss the international pass, located in the center of Naha
Shuri Castle
Yoki Huang
Shuri Castle
No tickets are required to enter Shuri Castle Park. In fact, only a small area of the main hall needs tickets, the whole park is very large, and the non-fee area can be visited for a long time. Passing through the door above is the real toll area. The park has a lot of angles overlooking Naha and the blue shores in the distance. I thought that coming here is just to appreciate architecture and humanities, which really brings a lot of surprises.
Shuri Castle was built at the end of the 14th century AD, and the Ryukyu Kingdom was not established until 1429, which was the 15th century. It is said that "there is a Shuri Castle first, and then a Ryukyu country." Shuri Castle is the residence of the kings of the Ryukyu Kingdom. It is the political center of the Ryukyu Kingdom and the witness of the history of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The authenticity of Shuri Castle was burned down during World War II. Today it is rebuilt in 1992, which combines the architectural features of China and Japan and Okinawa.
The essence of Shuri Castle is not entirely in the main hall itself, but the real ancient city remains on the periphery, a city gate, and a stone monument, may have been baptized for a hundred years. The
main hall is the core building of the entire park and the largest wooden monument in the Ryukyu Kingdom. The double-decker building on the top of the main hall of the main hall is very similar to the Taihe Temple in the Forbidden City in Beijing. Although it is everywhere in our country, the miniature Okinawa is indeed a giant. The front of the Tang Dynasty windbreaker decoration, engraved with a flame orb, painted with Jinlongxiangyun, is the most eye-catching part; such a design can also be found in Japanese shrines, but it is seamlessly combined with the Chinese building's cornice.
After entering the main hall, the rigor and humanity of the Japanese business is undoubtedly revealed. The shoes need to be taken off the shoes, and the staff will provide visitors with clean thick bags to hold the shoes and recycle them at the exit after completing the tour. And there is a clear indication of the tour route, do not have to go back to the road; many places in the hall for the protection of culture and copyright, can not take pictures, can be prompted when taking pictures, very human.
After going out of the main hall, follow the instructions to visit the outdoor Yuihara, the world known as the inner city of Shuri, is the living space of the king and his family, and it is also the commanding height of Shuricheng. From the city wall, you can overlook the city of Naha. If you don't have a towering skyscraper, the light-colored buildings such as the small grain Lego are seamlessly spliced and densely packed. The sea breeze blowing from a distance seems to be mixed with a touch of salty taste, which is the most amazing place in the entire Shuri Park.
